Keep in mind, for this 3 node cluster, N = 3.

I did a bit more digging and I found this (for future searches on this topic):

So, according to this, if I'm reading it right, the SSD node WILL take the majority of reads.

Any comments welcome.

If I have a 3 node cluster and 2 of the nodes use spinning drives and 1 of
